Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

* We're happy to talk about 2023 *

We live in a very pleasant house with a tropical garden. Everything is on the ground floor with all comfort!
On one side of the house there is a master bedroom and two other bedrooms. All with airco.
In total we have 4 sleeping places (suitable for adults), but if you travel with a baby/toddler we can easily set up an extra baby's traveller bed.
There is also a bathroom with shower, bath and a second toilet.
On the other side of the house we have our kitchen and living room with view on the nice large garden (with some children's playing equipment and a large trampoline). Our home is south oriented, so in summer you can enjoy the sun all day long!
We also have a room for laundry.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Westerlo is a village located in the Belgian province of Antwerp. We realy love to live here. It is a friendly neighbourhood and there are a lot of green parks and forests. It is a real paradise if you like to cycle or walk.
Within walking distance you have several shops, including a bakery, a butcher, a supermarket, ... .
There is a bus station in our street, but a car is convenient.

We have an easy acces to the highway. It is also a central place to visit all the famous cities in Belgium, like:

- Antwerp (within 30 minutes driving)
- Brussels (within 50 minutes driving)
- Hasselt (within 30 minutes driving)
- Genk (within 40 minutes driving)
- Ghent (within 1h10 driving)
- Bruges (within 1h45 driving)
These cities are also nice for shopping and sightseeing!

When you love big shopping mall's you can also easily go to:
- Wijnegem Shopping Center (https://www.wijnegem-shop-eat-enjoy.be) in Antwerp
- Maasmechelen Village Designer Outlet Center (https://www.thebicestercollection.com/maasmechelen-village) in Maasmechelen (70 km driving)

One of the benefits of living here is that you can experience the city, but also the tranquility of the countryside.
Belgium is world-famous for its chocolate, waffles and beer.

It is also nice to do some daytrips to The Netherlands or Germany (both within less than 1 hour driving).

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

There are a lot of historical/cultural sights to visit. For example you can visit our restored mill or go to the Abbey in Tongerlo (with a work from Da Vinci).
Once a week there is also a local market in the center of our village. All on walking distance.

Kids will love the various amount of playgarden's (both indoor and outdoor). We also have a couple of petting zoo's nearby. We can give you a lot of advice for activities to do since we have two kids aged 5 en 9 years old. We also have a lot of toys for children like Playmobil, dolls, books, ... .

In the center we also have a nice swimming pool with a lazy river in it :-). When you love sports it is also nice to see a match of our soccer team (https://kvcwesterlo.be/).

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We will take care of your house as our own, and expect the same from you.
We have 4 chickens in our garden. This does not require much work. Daily checking their grain and ensure that the water container is full. On the other hand, they reward you with some delicious fresh eggs :-). We also have two adorable cats, Mollie & Onyx. They are absolutely not shy and are used of having kids around. They often go outside on their daily trip or just enjoying the sunshine, so it's not necessary to do the litter box every day; 1-2 times a week is fine ;).
We love pets and are happy to take care of them!
